Polish Revisionists Demonstrate Against Barrier to Palestine

December 31, 1933
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Four members of the Brith Trumpeldor, Revisionist youth organization, were arrested last night when foot and mounted police charged and dispersed a Revisionist street demonstration. About one thousand marchers were in line carrying banners reading “Down With the Anti-Semitic Regime in Palestine” and “We Demand Unrestricted Immigration.” The marchers distributed thousands of ### protesting against the restriction of Jewish immigration into Palestine.

The demonstration was intended to dramatize the movement now in full swing in Poland to secure an immense number of signatures to a mass petition protesting the action of the Palestine government.

Polish Jewry, particularly Polish Jewish youth, among whom the Revisionist movement is very strong, looks to Palestine as one of the few countries able to receive Jews.
